The Only Way
to a Better World

American Dissident Voices
July 24, 1993

Welcome to American Dissident Voices, the first uncensored patriotic radio program. I'm Kevin Alfred Strom.

On the mall in Washington, DC, near the great museums and monuments to America's founders and heroes, on priceless land paid for by the American people stands a newly-opened six-sided building called the "Holocaust Memorial Museum." Though its boosters claim this museum is dedicated to education, to compassion, and to an understanding of history; it is actually a huge monument to bigotry and falsehood. You will be shocked by what I am about to tell you, shocked not so much by my "political incorrectness" but by fact that you, my friends, have been brazenly lied to, cruelly used, and treated with contempt.

Before we get into the main portion of today's program, I've got two special announcements to make regarding the American Dissident Voices radio schedule. You might want to get out paper and pencil, or start your tape recorders now, because you'll want to get all the following information down accurately.

First, I want to let all of the listeners to our shortwave broadcasts know that starting this week, American Dissident Voices can be heard at an additional time on an additional frequency. In addition to our regular time of 9 p.m. Eastern Time Saturday on 7355 kHz, we'll also be heard four hours later at 1 a.m. Eastern Time on 7395 kHz. This additional airing will continue at least through the end of December. WRNO is airing us at this additional time because they'll be carrying some live sports broadcasts which may occasionally pre-empt our regular 9 p.m. Eastern Time airing. If we're not on at our regular time, please tune in later the same evening at 1 a.m. Eastern Time, 10 p.m. Pacific Time, on 7395, that's 7-3-9-5 kHz.

We're also very proud to announce this week that we've added another powerful clear channel station to our American Dissident Voices lineup. All across a vast area of western North America, we can now be heard every Friday evening at 10:30 p.m. Central Time at 880 on your AM dial, via 50,000-Watt KRVN in Lexington, Nebraska. That's every Friday evening at 10:30 p.m. Central Time, 9:30 Mountain Time, at 880 on your AM dial. If you have friends or family who can't pick up our international shortwave broadcasts, because they don't have a shortwave radio, and they live in the western half of the U.S. or Canada, ask them to try and tune us in on KRVN 880 next Friday at 10:30 p.m. Central Time.

We'd definitely be interested in receiving reception reports as to how KRVN and/or our new 7395 shortwave broadcasts are coming in. Write to National Vanguard Books, Department R, PO Box 90, Hillsboro, WV 24946 USA. Enclose one dollar or two International Reply Coupons if you'd like a copy of our big patriotic book catalog and our latest radio schedule. That's National Vanguard Books, Department R, PO Box 90, Hillsboro, WV 24946 USA.

Please stay tuned to the very end of this broadcast because I'll have even more radio schedule information for you at that time.

A Terrible Tragedy for Many Nations

World War II was an unparalleled tragedy. It is undoubtedly the greatest and most destructive conflict in human history. At least 55 million souls perished in its infernos, most of them civilians. And that isn't even counting the millions who died as a result of starvation, forced population transfers, mistreatment of POWs, and Communist takeovers after the war was over. No one with any moral sense could ever want to minimize this tragedy, or even any aspect of it. And I assure you that such is not my intent in this program.

But I must speak out when that great tragedy, and the loss of millions upon millions of innocent lives, are being twisted and distorted for political purposes and monetary gain; and when most of the suffering of that terrible war is being ignored or minimized because of the single-minded agenda of one particular group.

The Numbers Game

How many Americans died in World War II? Chances are you can't give an answer to that question without reference to an almanac or encyclopedia. When I ask that question to high school and college students all I usually get are blank stares.

More blank stares are the result when the questions are: How many Russians died in World War II? How many Frenchmen? How many British? How many Germans? How many Italians?

But when the question is, "How many Jews died in World War II?" there is hardly anyone who doesn't immediately have the figure "6 million" and the word "Holocaust" on his lips. Why is it that we can't come up with the most basic facts about the losses of any other people in that terrible war - why is it that we don't even know how many Americans died - while the "6 million" figure for Jewish losses is drilled into our brains from elementary school through college, and is repeated and emphasized again and again on television and in the movies?

That's actually a very good question. For many years, scholars and researchers have been delving into the history of World War II, and their research has cast a lot of doubt on the commonly accepted 6 million figure for Jewish losses in that war. Now undoubtedly you've heard Jewish spokesmen decrying this movement among historians and researchers to bring our history books into closer accord with the facts. This movement is usually called "revisionism," because of the belief of its adherents that the history of wars is usually written by the victors, and the victors often have a lot of reasons for lying: covering up their own atrocities, and justifying extreme actions taken against those they wish to paint as "evil."

But what these Jewish spokesmen haven't told you is that it isn't only Revisionists who have questioned the six million figure. Even establishment historians and even official Jewish "Holocaust" historians have been forced by new studies and documents to drastically revise that figure downward. But you, lowly citizen, haven't been told. Although in scholarly publications it is now admitted that many of the original claims about Jewish losses during World War II were exaggerations or fabrications; the American people aren't deemed worthy of knowing this. For the hoi polloi, the Six Million figure is still given, and claims long ago discredited to nearly all historians of every background and political persuasion, such as the claim that there were gas chambers for killing Jews on German soil, are still paraded as the truth in endless books, plays, films, and television programs. Let's take a look at some of these figures that are generally kept out of public view.

United Press International carried a story on March 26, 1992 that was carried in a few newspapers, usually just a few square inches on a corner of an inside page. The story deals with deaths at the German wartime concentration camp Auschwitz, which has long been alleged to be the lynchpin of the "Holocaust," where 4 million of the alleged 6 million deaths occurred, supposedly by gassing of Jewish inmates. Let me quote from this article:

"Warsaw, Poland (UPI) - Newly released documents confirm that 1.5 million victims died at the Nazi concentration camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau during World War II, not 4 million - as claimed by the former Soviet Union - Jewish and Polish officials said yesterday. Wladyslaw Bartoszewski, a member of the Council for Dialogue between Poles and Jews, said the official account of the number of victims was reduced following verification of archives recently returned by Soviet authorities to Poland. Polish communist authorities used the 4 million figure because it was established by a postwar Soviet commission on Nazi crimes."

2.5 million that were presumed dead actually survived! This is really astounding news, and good news I should think from almost anyone's point of view. Even Jewish authorities on the period concur with this reduction in the death tolls. But why aren't we told in our textbooks and on our televisions that we must now reduce the "official" six million to 3.5 million? Why indeed?

In fact, the situation is even more amazing. The establishment holocaust historian Reitlinger has been forced by recent revelations to revise his estimate of Auschwitz deaths from 4 million down to 600,000. And when the collapsing Soviet Union recently released the captured German records for Auschwitz for 1942 and 1943 (when the alleged extermination program was supposed to be in full swing) to the Red Cross, which meticulously recorded the deaths of inmates, the total was found to be only 70,000, and that was for all causes and for all inmates, not just Jewish ones. Why hasn't this been prominently featured in the media? Why does the now-discredited 6 million figure still rule there?

Another largely hidden fact is the retreat of the Holocaust claimants from their original position on concentration camps on German soil. Initially after the war it was claimed that such camps, such as the camp at Dachau, had been used for execution by gas of hundreds of thousands of Jewish inmates. After the war, a simulated "gas chamber" was constructed and a plaque erected to honor its victims. When they were exposed as frauds, and even the Jewish Holocaust historians have admitted they were frauds, the plaque was removed and the claims were quietly withdrawn. In fact, they now admit that none of the concentration camps on German soil during World War II were used for any purpose of extermination of anybody, any more than were the concentration camps set up on American soil by the Roosevelt government for the internment of Japanese. But this admission is ignored in the popular media. The "Holocaust" claims are now restricted to camps in Poland. When a media-conditioned American hears the word "Dachau," he immediately thinks "Death Camp." And no effort is made by our largely Jewish media executives to correct this misinformation for which they are largely responsible.

Now no responsible person denies that hundreds of thousands of persons, both inmates and staff, died in these concentration camps. Let me read to you from the official report of the International Committee of the Red Cross on the subject, as printed in the book Did Six Million Really Die?

"One of the most important aspects of the Red Cross report is that it clarifies the true cause of those deaths that undoubtedly occurred in the camps towards the end of the war. Says the report: 'In the chaotic condition of Germany after the invasion [that is the invasion of Europe by American and Soviet forces] during the final months of the war, the camps received no food supplies at all and starvation claimed an increasing number of victims. Itself alarmed by this situation, the German government at last informed the ICRC [International Committee of the Red Cross] on February 1st, 1945... In March 1945, discussions between the President of the ICRC and General of the S.S. Kaltenbrunner gave even more decisive results. Relief could henceforth be distributed by the ICRC, and one delegate was authorised to stay in each camp...' ...The Red Cross are quite explicit in stating that food supplies ceased at this time due to the Allied bombing of German transportation, and in the interests of interned Jews they had protested on March 15th, 1944 against 'the barbarous aerial warfare of the Allies.' By October 2nd, 1944, the ICRC warned the German Foreign Office of the impending collapse the German transportation system, declaring that starvation conditions for people throughout Germany were becoming inevitable." It should also be added that many thousands died from outbreaks of typhus and other deadly diseases at a time when not only food but also medicine was largely unavailable. These are the reasons for the horrible mass deaths and piles of unburied corpses found by advancing Allied troops, all over Germany and the East, and especially in the concentration camps.

Another fact which hasn't been revealed in the mainstream media is the recent trip to Auschwitz by Jewish researcher David Cole, who interviewed the curator of the Auschwitz museum, Dr. Francsizek Piper, who openly admitted that the alleged "gas chamber" at Auschwitz had been constructed after the war!

You also haven't been told about the research conducted by gas chamber design engineer and expert Fred Leuchter, who travelled to Auschwitz and took samples of the walls of the alleged gas chambers, analysis of which along with studies of the building itself led Mr. Leuchter to the conclusion that no gassings had ever, or in fact could ever have been conducted there.

A Memorial for Those With Money and Power

So now we have a "Holocaust Memorial Museum" funded to the tune of many millions by the American taxpayer. I would have no objection to such a museum if its purpose were to honor the innocent dead who died in World War II on both sides of that conflict. And no one doubts the reality of those that really did die in the concentration camps in that war. But this museum continues the one-sided propaganda line that only one group's suffering really mattered. It continues the now-discredited claim of six million deaths by gassing of Jewish inmates, figures which even official scholarly Jewish sources say were exaggerations. It ignores the deaths of many millions who died during and after that war - the German civilians who were firebombed to death in Dresden and Hamburg - the millions of many nationalities who died on forced marches in the population transfers after the victory of the Red Army in the East - the millions of civilians who starved to death as a result of the Allied food blockade - the hundreds of thousands of Eastern European patriots repatriated at gunpoint on Eisenhower's orders back to a certain death behind the Iron Curtain - and I could go on and on...it's outrageous! A REAL Holocaust museum would also have the intellectual honesty to mention the intentional starvation of millions of Ukrainians by the largely Jewish Communists there during the 1920's. But no. That wouldn't fit in with the narrow political agenda of the museum's real backers. It is no surprise that the Communists are treated as heroes in "our" Holocaust Memorial Museum.

It is not truly a memorial to the victims of the many holocausts of the twentieth century. It is a monument to those with money and power, who use a one-sided and exaggerated depiction of their suffering to get money from the taxpayers. And I do not mean just the few dozen millions that were spent so far on the museum. No. I mean the 3 or 4 billion we give Israel every year. The new ten billion in "loan guarantees." The many billions that German taxpayers have been forced to contribute to Israel.

Even though the popular version of the six million legend is admitted in private to be an exaggeration, it is so lucrative that even those who know it to be false keep it alive in the eyes of the public. The legend of a unique Jewish suffering during the war also provides a moral blackmail of sorts against anyone who criticizes Israeli or Jewish policies.

It all comes down, as do so many things in America these days, to money and power.

Doubts in the Public Mind

There are some encouraging signs that a growing percentage of Americans are beginning to realize that they're being used. A poll by the Roper Organization on April 19 revealed that some 32 per cent of Americans have some doubts about the Holocaust story they've been told.

Responses to Revisionism - Legal and Illegal

Even if you have some doubts about the facts I've been revealing on this program, I'd like you to ask yourself this question. Have the advocates of the Holocaust story been willing to debate the issue openly with the revisionist historians? Or have they resorted to name-calling and intimidation?

Fred Leuchter, who I mentioned before had done chemical analysis which proved that no gassings took place at Auschwitz, has been hounded and harassed by Jewish groups, and most of his professional clients have been intimidated into dropping him, effectively putting him out of business.

In Canada, Ernst Zundel was tried and convicted for publishing a booklet that a certain group didn't like, entitled Did Six Million Really Die? which questions the official version of history.

Famed best-selling British author and historian David Irving, whose research into original wartime documents has led him to the conclusion that "there's not a single shred of evidence that Hitler ordered the death of six million Jews at Auschwitz," has been barred from entering Canada because of his views on this topic, and has been tried and convicted of uttering forbidden thoughts in Germany.

I ask you, are these the actions of people sure of the truth of their convictions? Or are they the desperate actions of liars willing to do anything to prevent the exposure of their lies?

What Can We Learn From This?

I think that all thoughtful and patriotic people need to look at both sides of this issue and decide for themselves. For far too long one side has had a monopoly on victimhood and has been able to squelch criticism of their claims quite effectively. But I think you deserve to decide for yourself. That's why I am making an offer to you this week of the book I mentioned earlier that they tried to ban in Canada and which has been officially or unofficially suppressed by corrupt establishments in about a dozen countries around the world. Now you see for yourself what all these folks are so afraid of. To every listener who donates $6 or more to keep American Dissident Voices on the air, we will send a copy of Did Six Million Really Die? as our Radio Offer Number 14. Examine the facts and claims from all sources and decide for yourself if you have been lied to and if your good will has been grossly abused, as I have alleged on this program.

Just send $6 or more to our regular address, National Vanguard Books, Department R, PO Box 90, Hillsboro, WV 24946 USA, and remember to ask for Radio Offer Number 14.

A Final Word

We've received word of an important new radio program produced by patriot and fighter for free speech Ernst Zundel of Canada. Ernst Zundel has been covered on American Dissident Voices in the past, but for those of you who don't know him, Ernst Zundel, a German-born Canadian artist, writer, and publisher, has for almost a decade been fighting for his rights to free speech and thought in Canada. After being convicted of "thought crimes" for doubting the official version of the history of World War II, he waged a valiant struggle for freedom of thought, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and historical truth. His supposed "crime" was distributing the very book we offer today as our Radio Offer Number 14 - Did 6 Million Really Die?. At great personal cost, he finally emerged victorious and the shameful "gag order" that had been imposed upon him by the courts in Canada has now been lifted. He's taken to the worldwide airwaves and can now be heard with his English-language "Voice of Freedom" program over WRNO from 5 to 5:30 p.m. Eastern US Time every Sunday afternoon on 15420 kHz. Mr. Zundel also has a German-language version of his show on WINB every Saturday and Sunday at 3 p.m. Eastern Time on 15145 kHz, and on WWCR every Sunday at 12:30 p.m. Eastern Time on 15685 kHz. Congratulations Ernst Zundel, I say to you and to all our American Dissident Voices listeners - Keep on thinking free! This is Kevin Alfred Strom - I'll see you next week!
